"A little British humor mixed with a single man's wisdom makes for an enjoyable read." -- Amazon reviewer

"I haven't read such an entertaining book for quite a while! - Couldn't stop once I started! To find a good comedy read - I must admit - is not an easy thing to do in this era of world recession, crime and horror topics that flow all over the media lately. As a fan of the 'Amsterdam confessions of a Shallow Man' blog I was happy to see the book being released. - Love the writing style, the thoughts supported by very well picked (often hilarious) metaphors, the sharpness and boldness of the saying and the way Simon Woolcot uses his remarkable British sense of humor to talk about the Dutch culture while walking us through his character's spicy adventures in Amsterdam." -- Amazon reviewer

"I have 15 tailor made suits and over 50 shirts that I can wear for work. To ensure that I don't repeat the same combinations too often, I keep a spreadsheet that notes which suits were worn with which shirts and ties on which day."

Meet Simon Woolcot, named Amsterdam's shallowest man by his best female friend, he's out to prove her wrong by keeping a diary of his life for a month.

Follow his adventures in fine dining, exclusive fashion, strip clubs, male grooming, the red light district and his never ending love of women. One legged hit men, organised crime, and Dutch culture all come under the microscope of a shallow man, a sinner that commits all seven deadly sins. From Lust to Greed, from Gluttony to Wrath, during the four week period featured in the diary.

Based on the controversial and popular Blog, the Amsterdam Confessions of a Shallow Man. The book provides insights into Amsterdam through the eyes of a spoiled Expat.

Learn the answers to such critical questions as why do so many Dutch people wear denim and brown shoes? Why are Dutch women so loud? How to navigate the Dutch dating scene. Is it possible to take Taxi's in Amsterdam and not be ripped off?

Plus what is the Dutch Zwarte Piet (Black Pete) controversy that has the UN so excited?

All actions have consequences and his lifestyle leads to major problems in his personal and professional life before culminating in the shocking conclusion.

Will Simon realize how shallow his life is before it's too late?

Simon Woolcot: some might say he’s a legend in his own mind, others call him a nuisance who should go back to London.

Simon is a privileged expat who came to Amsterdam for a six month assignment and has remained for nine years. Planning is obviously not his strong point. He spends his time commenting on various aspects of life in the Netherlands on the Amsterdam Confessions of a Shallow Man Blog, which started in August 2013 and within a short time has grown to reach over two and a half thousand readers a day.
